This is small but it is the Old Capitol Building. It has the old rooms and historical information. I really liked it. You have to visit it at least once along with the New Capitol Building and the History Museum behind the Supreme Court Building

I tool for granted the Capitol Building while growing up. I'm a Tallahassee native and took field trips often in elementary. As an adult, I appreciate it more.
